  • I went there for the first time in may and had an amazing experience and the service was excellent and the food was delicious.. i returned 4 months later and was able to enjoy more delicious food and learn how to play tejo had an amazing time!
  • Great new hotel! With nice restaurant! Hotel is managed by two brothers who sprak fluent English. They can help with al information and trips/hikes you want.. Book it you won't be disappointed!
  • What do steel projectiles, screaming men, explosives and ludicrous amounts of beer have in common? Tejo, the national sport of Colombia, of course! We were recommended by our hotel to learn how to play tejo here, and were not disappointed! This family run business (a mom and two sons) was super friendly and patient in teaching us the game, and chatting with us about life in Salento and their experiences living in Texas (random!). While we're nowhere near experts, we can now say we've set off explosions in Colombia!
  • Great place. We learned how to play Tejos there.
  • Order the grilled trucha, best dish we had in Colombia!
